, so i'm a little bit surprised, but somebody's got to fess up as to what happened. it wasn't susan rice. it was somebody in the administration or intelligence commune and we know it wasn't david petraeus. >> do you think it's possible that anyone at the white house could have known the full version of events or possible series of version of events and yes, they are handed an editeded version, the same one ambassador rice received, but they knew there were alternative ones that said it was preplanned, not spontaneous. >> for the administration to admit it wasn't informed, information the director said he had was hard for me to believe and means the administration really wasn't on top of their game. the most important issue we got here, a u.s. ambassador was murdered. first ambassador we've lost since 1979. three others were killed. we didn't have advanced intelligence to know the attack was going to take place. that sends a horrible message to our diplomats and we need to know why the administration tried to look the other way, tried to not pay attention to what somebody in the admi
suspect all of this is going to be excavated at some point. i thought the president, when susan rice was being picked on as she continues to be picked on, he said kind of come at me, i'm the guy you should deal with, and i suspect the republicans are going to take him -- that challenge. >> i think you're right. let's turn to the fiscal cliff. your book "the price of politics" deals with this in some detail. there's a general sense that there is a greater desire on both sides to try and do a deal now. post the election, obama got a second term, to simply drag it out as before would be self-defeating. do you agree with that? >> well, the mood is better, but there's some real serious disagreements on taxes and entitlement reform. i think of the things going on, it is one of the most worrisome because it has an absolute deadline. the first of the year, they have to decide what they're going to do. if they don't change the law, it's not a matter of policy, but the law on taxes and spending cuts, the congressional budget office which is the neutral arbiter on this, has said we will have th
